Think & Grow Rich Lessons

18 years ago today, 100’s of FIRST RESPONDERS entered the World Trade Center Towers while thousands of

others were trying to get out.  They went in to do their job, SAVE LIVES.  They knew their DEFINITE PURPOSE

in life and did it without hesitation.  With unwavering courage, they saved others at the cost of their own lives. 

They deserve... nay, IT SHOULD BE REQUIRED THEY BE REMEMBERED for the heroes that they are

Today I salute them.


Compared to that kind of courage, what we do is no comparison.  However, here is what Napolean Hill teaches

we need to do to build self-confidence.



First. I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I DEMAND of

myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.


Second. I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical

action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for thirty

minutes daily, upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear

mental picture of that person.


Third. I know through the principle of auto-suggestion, any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually

seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it, therefore, I will devote ten minutes

daily to demanding of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.


Fourth. I have clearly written down a description of my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life, and I will never stop trying,

until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.


Fifth. I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will

engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces

I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to

serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity,

because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe

in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself.


I will sign my name to this formula, commit it to memory, and repeat it aloud once a day, with full FAITH that it will

gradually influence my THOUGHTS and ACTIONS so that I will become a self-reliant, and successful person.
